    Oh good, you've arrived! Right on queue to see the world ending...

    Ferrari said this either last year or the year before. They won't look like heros on a Friday anymore. This has proven true all season. Just. Give. It. Until. Qualifying. To. Doom-say!!!!

    'Doesn't look good, even for FP1' sounds like doom and gloom to me. You could have said 'let's see how we do in their practice sessions'.

    Please be realistic at your expectations in regards to zike, he's a pessimist by nature.
    He cannot help himself but he is a tifoso none the less ! :D

    I like to think of Zike as constructive criticism.....nothing wrong with that in my book. Totally agree though about other peoples expectations with regards to Zike.

    Yep, I'm guessing either old engine for a Friday and don't want it to go pop... or... race engine and don't want to stress it too much. Either way, we might be behind merc in top speed, but we're defs ahead of everyone else.

    All things considered... pretty encouraging so far :)

    Haas also very slow in the speed traps so I think we've turned the engine down

    Yeah, we should be fine with Merc winning here considering their new engine upgrade and their better speed in the straights. However, we may increase our engine power even further going into the weekend. Whatever the case may be, we are going to turn it up a notch after this race that's for sure. There are tracks coming our way that suits us greatly.
